Happy Birthday Sweetheart. Hard to believe yu would turn 73 today. You left me way to early. I miss yu every single day.
I feel your presence in everything I do.
Love never fades, we just change the way we show it.
I see you in the feathers, the pennies, a bird coming close to me, a rabbit in the yard. Honey yu will always be my Guardian Angel safe a place for me by your side. When the Lord calls me home I know you will be there to greet me.

Honey, I can't believe you have been gone 11 years. I know you are watching over our family, you are my Guardian Angel  ♥
Things are going good, I have a boyfriend, he is a good man. He spoils me an takes care of me, you know that already.
Hard to believe Lyle Travis turned 40 this year, he has under 5 years left in prison. Please continue to watch over him and keep him safe.
Damian turned 18 hard to believe the kids are grown. Aubrey will be 17, honey you would be proud of them. Thank you for being such a great husband, father, an grandpa. You left a lasting impression on all of our lifes. We love you so much.
RIP Sweetheart

Happy heavenly Birthday Rich, you are missed everyday. Hard to believe it's your 72 and Birthday. I want you to know how much you are loved and missed.
Hugs an kisses coming your way, I see you in everything around me.
You told me to find love again, I have a great guy named Brian, I know you had a hand in us meeting. He showers me with love, kindness an sweetness. We are building a life together, and he understands how much you mean to me.
That was very important to me, because you will always have a place in my heart.

Honey, our beautiful Grandaughter Aubrey turned 16 May 15th. I sent her a card and it came back Marked undeliverable. My heart broke.
Hard to believe Damian an Aubrey will soon be adults and finally able to make their own decisions and spend time with our side of the family. Also Big Lyle an Kathaleen. I pray everyday for God to heal Debbys anger, heal her heart.
I miss you so much, the best thing is I know we will be together again. ❤

Hi Sue!! We'll be calling a little later in the week. Getting a new roof put on and it's hectic right now. A bit jealous of the beach talk when we're just coming out of winter here in Utah.
The reminder of Rich's passing brings back a lot of special memories. More and more that's what sustains us as we get older and survive Covid.
Wish you all the best and look forward to talking to you.
FYI, phone is 801.928.1760 and email is veibellalan@gmail.com.
Take care!

I stored emails to a personal account relating to my mothers passing on 7/5/2020. I found the link to this site in an email I had long forgotten.
Sue, Christine and I think about the two of you from time to time. I've often repeated stories about Rich. Especially our 40 hour ride from from Raleigh, NC to SLC.
Love and miss you both,
Alan and Christine Veibell

Honey it has been four long years since I received my last phone call from you. You said Honey come take care of things. I was at work and knew immediately what you were saying.
I knew our lovely life together was going to end and I was going to be there to help you cross over. You're last words were I love you and then the lord took you home. Someday when it is my turn I know you will be thre to help me cross over and we will be together again.
I love you nd miss you're loving arms every day. No one can ever take your place.
Please watch over Lyle , Damian and Aubrey. Lyle and Damian really need you're loving arms. 
Miss you and love you hugs from you're loving wife

Honey, I miss you. I know you are watching over me. birds march around my block wall in the back yard . Plus I have a rabbit living in the back yard. I sure wish I could have kept our family together but you know the kids need to grow up and take care of me. Instead of me taking care of them but of course it will never happen. But I know you will always be with me. Hopefully I will get to see Damian and Aunrey soon! I sure miss them. Love and miss you

Honey if you can possibly help us. Our family is in deep trouble I screwed things up with jerry and Lyle has not grown up yet. Please ask God for extra prayers and help to somehow bring us all together. You were always the strong one that held us together. We have not been able to stay together as a family. I have been saying extra prayers but things have not improved. Hugs and kisses luv you honey

Honey I truly miss you. I have failed at keeping the family together. Remember how Michelle and I fought. We'll she still the same used me to get what she could and stabbed me in the back. Debby is keeping our grandchildren from talking to me or seeing them. But hopefully that will change. Lyle still the same.
Enough about that, I miss you and think of you daily. We will be together again in heaven and hopefully we will not have family problems.
Please work you're magic and if at all possible bring our family back together. Love you always

Honey, I thought about you alday yesterday. Watching the clock. Hearing your voice for the last time, watching you take your last breath. God, I wish we could have shared our retirement together. I know you are watching over us I feel you. Please keep our family safe. Lyle Travis has been making really bad decisions. We pray so hard for him, lord our family needs your love. luv you

All our family trips came back and I felt sick. We had many great trips together but I can not get them back no matter how hard I try. Going to the dunes proved it. Even though I felt you and like Michelle said we saw you as a bird in my heart there is a big void.
October 23, 2011
October 23, 2011
Hi Honey, like Michelle said we went to the dunes , I missed you so much it just is not the same without you. You are the glue that held everyone together. Without you I felt empty and was unsure of myself. The dunes actually scared me. I came home and cried for hours.

Happy Anniversary Honey, 32 years

December 18, 2018

As everyone knows, Rich and I were definitely soulmates.  We had a love and bond that very few people get to share. 

He has been my Guardian Angel for almost 8 years now, but we will be reunited in Heaven this I know.
